Anchorage’s Mario Chalmers turned back the clock and turned in one of the greatest performances of his NBA career.

The Memphis Grizzlies guard bagged 23 points, eight rebounds and nine assists in a 112-94 loss to Oklahoma City.

Chalmers, of Bartlett High fame, has played especially well against the Thunder in two games this season.

He has topped the 20-point plateau twice – both against Oklahoma City, highlighted by a season-high 29 on Nov. 16.

In both games he nailed four 3-pointers.

Tonight he added season highs in rebounds, assists and minutes [39].

Chalmers, 29, is the only Alaskan currently playing in the NBA.
